EMFA landscape

A free and independent media is a central pillar for any healthy democratic society. In light of the legislative work in the European Parliament regarding the European Media Freedom Act (EMFA), this event aims to reflect on the horizontal issues regarding the media markets in Member States as well as some country specifics in order to allow MEPs to map out and propose efficient solutions.

Why do we need a strong and binding European Media Freedom Act?

The upcoming legislation is a response to worrying trends in media freedom across the EU. It aims at advancing the internal market in the media sector and protecting media freedom, pluralism, and independence in the European single market. The EMFA will benefit all different stakeholders: media companies, public service media, journalists and media professionals.
